MJ, it was shocking to hear this. We came onboard this website at the same time, and you are a dear friend. I don't know what to say, but I'll say this: I was told I'd never walk again without knee replacements. That was forty years ago, and my knees are still working. 

All my best thoughts and hope for you,

Nathan

Sorry to hear this, Mike. You were one of the first writers I reviewed so long ago. You will be missed, and I wish you all the best.
Keep your chin up, and keep looking up, old friend.

Please restore my premium account. When I was prompted that my account had expired, I downgraded to Basic to see what I had lost in the shutdown.

Where've you been, buddy?

I asked my doctor, "what's the best thing I can do to survive the pandemic?"  he replied, "the best thing you can do is to stop drinking and smoking, and stop chasing women.: I said  "doc, I don't deserve the best. What else you got?"  I'm well. Been using the downtime for rewriting. Runaways and my bigfoot story, which is now called Wild Woman of the Woods. I see you're still in the hunt when it comes to storytelling. Keep up the good work, john.

We came here in the same year, and I remember many times when I didn't get the drift of a reviewer's comments. One of early reviewers was Sarah Scotti, who more or less took me under her wing. One of her first criticisms was how I had used a flashback during a flashback. Ah, the good old days.
By the way, keep your critters out of the partial eclipse shadow next Monday. Perhaps blinders for the donkeys if you don't have barn room.
A lot of dogs, all over the country, and other pets as well are going to have eye damage if their outside during the solar eclipse. Their curiosity will likely make them look at the partial eclipse, and even one glimpse at the sun will result in permanent damage.

Do not leave your pets outside during the solar eclipse. One glimpse at a partial eclipse will permanently damage your pets' eyes. I am surprised how many of my dog-training clients having considered this avoidable danger.
